2. Cathedral of St. James in Sibenik
Cathedral of St. James is culturally Croatia’s single most important architectural monument of the Renaissance age. This triple-nave basilica with three apses and a 32 metre high dome dates back to 1298 and is listed on UNESCO’s World Heritage Site since 2000. It is the church of the Catholic Church in Croatia, the see of the Šibenik diocese and dedicated to Saint James the Greater. It is often mistakenly known as St Jacobs because Croatian, like many other languages, uses the same name for both ‘James’ and ‘Jacob’.

Each room is organised and equipped according to the needs of its new function.
